This high perch act was a part of the Barnum and Bailey’s show at Madison Square Garden. The Weise Troupe uses a pole so long it would not fit on a conventional stage. Two boys perform on the top of the pole while balancing on the shoulders of the understander.
The act would do well in vaudeville. The height of the pole itself attracts attention.
